vegetable filing

• Saute garlic and onions in oil. Add pork and saute until fat begins to render. Add water, bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer until pork is tender. Add shrimp and fish sauce and cook for 2 minutes. Add vegetables and stir-fry 5-10 minutes, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Drain in a strainer and cool.


• Combine eggs and salt. Gradually add flour, alternating with milk. Beat with a whisk until smooth. Beat in oil gradually. Refrigerate batter 1 hour.
• To cook, brush a nonstick pan with oil and place over low heat. Ladle in 2 tablespoons batter, swirl to cover pan and pour off excess. Cook until the wrapper can be lifted with a spatula without sticking (if batter bubbles, the pan is too hot). Turn and cook just to warm the other side. Set aside and cover with a towel to keep warm. You can also keep the wrappers in a tortilla warmer.


• Combine all ingredients in a small pot and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm. Transfer into a gravy boat just before serving.


• Remove the brown skin on the peanuts and pulse in a food processor or grinder until finely chopped. Transfer into a condiment dish or small bowl. Set Aside.


• Place a lettuce leaf in the center of a wrapper. Add 2 tablespoons filling. Fold bottom of wrapper over filling; wrap one side over filling and roll to the other side. The edge of the lettuce will stick out. Seal edge with water. Wrap each lumpia in wax paper. Serve with sauce, minced garlic and chopped peanuts.

Here is a recipe that originated from China. The Chinese introduced noodles, noodle-making and noodle cooking in the Philippines centuries ago. We have adopted and improvised Chinese noodle recipes, and integrated them into our own cuisine using locally-available ingredients.
Just like Italian pasta, oriental noodles come is a wide variety of shapes and sizes, fresh and dried. Rice noodles–bihon, sotanghon, ho fan–are white; egg noodles, like miki, are yellow.

1/2 kilo chicken breast, boiled and flaked
1 cup chicken broth (saved from the boiled chicken)
1/2 kilo of egg noodles (fresh noodles, if available)
100 g. of dried rice noodles (not vermicelli, both are transparent and may look the same, but they are different)
1 medium-sized carrot, cut into matchsticks
1/4 green beans (french beans, preferably), cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
1/2 head of cabbage shredded
(You can substitute other vegetables like cauliflower, celery or broccoli)
1 onion, diced
1 head garlic, minced
1/2 cup oyster sauce (do not subsitute oyster-flavored sauce; Lee Kum Kee is a good brand)
2 to 3 tbsp. dark soy sauce
1/8 cup vegetable cooking oil
drizzling of sesame seed oil

Cooking procedure:
First of all, when you boil the chicken, spice up the broth with a whole onion, a whole head of garlic, a few peppercorns and a bay leaf. Don’t take shortcuts with this because the broth improves the overall flavor of the dish.
Place the egg noodles in a large heat-proof bowl. Pour boiling water to cover. Let stand 1 minute. Drain. This step is important if using fresh egg noodles. Fresh egg noodles are oily and salty. Blanching it in boiling water and draining it removes most of the saltiness and the excess oil.
Heat skillet (the best utensil to cook this dish in is a Chinese wok). Pour oil. Heat until just starting to smoke. Saute garlic and onions. Toss in carrots. Stir for a minute. Add beans. Then, the cabbage. When the cabbage starts to wilt, add 1 cup of chicken broth. When the broth starts to boil, add the rice noodles.
(While most people pre-soak the rice noodles in cold water, then drain it, I prefer to let it soak and cook in the chicken broth. This way, it absorbs the nutrients and flavor of the chicken.)
When the rice noodles has absorbed most of the liquid, add the egg noodles, flaked chicken breast, soy sauce, oyster sauce and pepper. Stir to distribute the vegetables evenly. Drizzle sesame seed oil all over. Give it a few more stir. That’s it! It’s ready. Serve it while still hot.
